Town of Sahuarita Fiesta History

The 2010 Fiesta Sahuarita is expected to be bigger and better than ever. With over 6,000 in attendance in 2009, we are expecting even more this year. There will be 60 vendors, including food, non-profits, local businesses, games, and crafts. There will be live entertainment, local

group performances, inflatables for the youth, games and activities, and much more for all. The Sahuarita Teen Advisory Council will also be coordinating a skating competition at the skate spot on site during the event. The Fiesta Sahuarita Committee is dedicated to working hard to bring the community the greatest event of the year. The 2010 Fiesta Sahuarita will take place at Anamax Park on September 25, from 3-8 p.m. The Town of Sahuarita is very proud of this event, for it truly captures our vision: “Creating Community through People, Parks and Programs”

Valle Verde Rotary Club and the United Way of Tucson and Southern Pima County will kick off the 2010 Sahuarita Harvest your FitThis year the Town of Sahuarita ness Fall Challenge. Parks & Recreation Department, This challenge will promote exParks & Recreation Commission, ercise, fitness and better nutrition

In 2004, the Town of Sahuarita was preparing to celebrate its tenth anniversary of incorporation. The Town Manager and Town Council agreed that this event should be a huge celebration marking the incorporation and looking to the future. The Town of Sahuarita Parks and Recreation Department took on the task and this was the birth of what is now called “Fiesta Sahuarita.” At its inception, Fiesta Sahuarita included a handful of government safety booths, a few local non-profit vendors, and some music and historical information. The Town provided free maps, the Sahuarita Magazine and gave t-shirts to the patrons. However, minimal participation and inclement weather challenged the Parks and Recreation staff. In 2004, long-time Sahuarita resident, Mayor Charles Oldham, who was also the Mayor during the time of incorporation, noted that nearly all of the 300 participants that participated were huddled in the main tent all in good spirits. He remarked that the patrons were enjoying the Town birthday cake as quarter size raindrops poured all around them. Soon after, the Town

of Sahuarita Parks and Recreation Department realized their biggest challenge for future Fiestas was going to be meeting the increasing demands of the community with a population explosion that more than tripled to over 25,000 local residents today.

DIRECTOR’S NOTE: Fall is fast on its way! We hope you have the chance to enjoy the annual Family Fun Night celebration on July 24th at North Santa Cruz Park. We will celebrate the achievements of those who participated in the Mayor’s Get Fit Challenge as well as showcased other family fun activities in celebration of National Parks & Recreation month. Remember to mark your calendars for Fiesta Sahuarita, the annual Town of Sahuarita birthday party, on September 25. This is one

party you will not want to miss! The six Town of Sahuarita parks make it fun to be outdoors, so I hope you will take the opportunity to explore all that they have to offer. Walking trails, ball fields, skate spots, fishing, and off leash dog parks are just a few of the many amenities our parks have to offer. At our Anamax Park Recreation Center, you can join one of our special interest classes, fitness programs, or adult sports leagues. Your youngsters can participate in one

of our many youth programs, including our dynamic After School program. We strive to offer programs that provide benefits of better health, socialization, coordination, and just plain fun. There is much to experience in Sahuarita’s wonderful parks and programs. Please take the time to explore our opportunities for yourself. Debbie Summers Town of Sahuarita Parks & Recreation Director
